Secretary of the United States, Mike Pompeo has revealed that the President Trump administration would be assigning six China-based media companies as foreign missions, in order to push back against communist propaganda.

Oyogist.com learnt that Mike Pompeo while speaking at a State news conference said that the US would integrate a dialogue on China with the European Union on Friday and that on Sunday he would begin a trip to India, Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Indonesia.

Pompeo said the decision was part of efforts to push back against “Chinese communist propaganda efforts” in the US.

“They are also substantially owned, or effectively controlled by a foreign government,” he said.

“We are not placing any restrictions on what these outlets can publish in the United States; we simply want to ensure that American people, consumers of information can differentiate between news written by a free press and propaganda distributed by the Chinese Communist Party itself. Not the same thing.” He further concluded.
